Should you always start offensive players on Monday (1 Viewer)

Gigantomachia

It always seems like offensives explode on Monday nights and defensives take the night off; why is this? Is there a pattern out there, i.e., any Sharks know exactly how much difference there is; if there is any?

Not expecting much, but I am wondering to what extent we should play our players on Monday night even if that means benching a solid starter with a so-so match up.

Is there anything to this or is Monday simply an illusion.

:unsure:

Pitt and Balt this Monday. I imagine this will change.
 
I feel like someone here did a study on this and found no evidence of offenses over-producing on MNF. However, in general only teams with good players are going to be on MNF so maybe that has something to do with our perception.

I almost always start a guy playing Monday over a guy playing Sunday if they're roughly equal (e.g. VJax over Roy this week), just to have a guy to watch and it seems to have worked out more often than not.

If I recall correctly, the good doctor Drinen did some sort of study like this, and indeed found that "when" a game was played had no correlation to performance.That being said, I'd still use a prime time game as a tie-breaker on lineup choices, merely because it's fun to watch them on the high def big screen. :thumbup:

Didn't both teams last night have a defensive TD and multiple INT's?

That's the camp I have always been in.Except that year I sat Favre because I thought dealing with the death of his father might hurt his game. :confused:
